Mmmm
See he's organized
And he's on the ball
Never miss a day of school
And he's an underdog
Wanna learn more and more
Pa and mama taught him good
He's about to change the face
Of yo ghetto neighborhood
Walking to school today
Saw a brother on the streets
Seem like everythang was cool
Said the brother's packing heat
Oop oop
Then everything changed
Cause he saw his own wings
And his mother was sad
They will last
Time will past
Cause I

Wondering we're talking bout
Everybody know what dis song's about
They be trying to hide the history
But they know who we are
Do oh you want to see
Everybody rise to this degree?
Raise ya hands high if you agree
Just say yes siree oh
Yes siree
If you agree say
Yes siree oh

Now to my folks think delivery sweet
Well they gone fuck around and push the leap
To the girls on prescriptions pills
I know how ya feel
To my boys in Iraqi fields
This ain't no time to kill
To my girls in therapy
See I'm a tell you this fo' free
To my folks up on the hill
With the cake and dollar bills
You need to watch the dirty cop
They the one you need to watch
I'm talking bout the dirty cop
They the one you need to watch!
Stop!

You get the wake up call
When you saw the buildings fall
Bow ties with the final call
Get ya money dollar bill ya'll
Bow ties with the final call
Get ya money dollar bill ya'll
To my folks on the picket line
Don't stop 'til you change they mind
I got love fo' my folks
Baptized when the levees broke
We gone keep marchin' on
Until you hear that freedom song
And if you think about turning back
I got the shotgun on ya back
And if you think about turning back
I got the shot gun on ya back
Bla (Black!)

Wondering we're talking bout
Everybody know what dis song's about
They be trying to hide the history
But they know who we are
Do you want to see
Everybody rise to the next degree?
Raise ya hands high if you agree
Just say yes siree oh

If you agree say
Yes siree hey
